After last minute heartbreak in Prague, Vincenzo Italiano will hope his side can pick themselves up for another shot at glory on the continent this time around.

Having secured just one victory in their first five matches this season, Genk have returned to form just in time for their group-stage opener.

Their poor start saw them slip from the Champions League to the Europa League and then the Europa Conference League.

However, just one defeat in their last seven matches has seen them reach the group stage and start strongly in the Belgian Pro League.

Genk’s only loss in that time came in their second leg playoff against Adana Demirspor, which they would eventually go on to win on penalties anyway.

Two tough league matches since have yielded four well-earned points for Genk, with a 1-1 draw against Anderlecht after playing with 10 men for over three-quarters of the game and a 2-0 victory at Union Saint-Gilloise.

However, home form has been slightly underwhelming, as the first leg win over Adana Demirspor remains their only success here this season.

Genk’s best-ever run in Europe saw them reach the quarter-finals in the 2016-17 before going down to Celta Vigo, but their first ever experience in the Conference League provides a better opportunity for the club to go far.

Losing their fourth European final left a bitter taste at the end of last season for Fiorentina, considering they also lost the Coppa Italia final to Inter Milan.

Fiorentina have not made an ideal start to this campaign either, showing inconsistency with some big wins and chastening defeats.

Scoring nine goals in their first four Serie A matches suggest that they have made a strong start, and a thrashing of Genoa and an impressive win over Atalanta suggest they have. However, losing 4-0 at Inter and drawing with Lecce were big low points so early in the season.

Italiano’s side limped through qualifying too after being a late entry to the competition following Juventus’ expulsion over the summer.

However, Rapid Viena very nearly ended their European campaign before it even began, winning the first leg in Austria.

It took an injury-time penalty from star man Nicolas Gonzalez to complete the turnaround in Florence, as last year’s runners-up now take their spot in a group that contains Ferencvaros and Cukaricki.
